F/11 Camera Backpack

Your new Photography Assistant. The F/11 Camera backpack served as my final year major project between 2016-2017. Photographers invest a lot of money into our gear and want it to be as safe as possible. Our lenses in particular are exposed the most when changing lenses outdoors. Exposing the glass to precipitation can hinder the final photograph. Juggling two lenses at one time whilst holding your camera body could also lead to potential drops. The F/11 backpack incorporates a new lens security system that holds lenses in place inside the backpack. Lens Locking plates sit inside the backpack and locks lenses into place. Twist and lock/unlock lenses with one hand. Changing lenses outdoors has now become a lot safer and quicker*. *This design now belongs to Lino Manfrotto + Co. Spa.

The original concept featured a roll top design, allowing users added flexibility, whether carrying Photography equipment of their everyday carry, or both!
An additional strap allows the user to 'swing' the backpack around the body to the front and secure it in place. This then allows the user to open the side access, swap lenses etc. with both hands. This also keeps the bag clean, as it doesn't need to be set down on a potentially muddy/ wet ground.
Below: A step-bystep process of how to use the Innovative Lens Divider and Locking Plates.
